Dissent is the highest form of patriotism

Unless, of course, you happen to be the head of a group that is dissenting against Teh Won...

Chamber of Commerce CEO Tom Donohue is a wanted man -- at least according to the liberal activist group that's put a de facto bounty on his head.

A network of liberal groups known as Velvet Revolution started an ad campaign offering $200,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the man whose trade organization has become a thorn in the side of the Obama administration and congressional Democrats.

The group is not leveling any specific charges of criminal behavior. Rather, it is casting a wide net, fishing for any whistleblowers from Donohue's past who might come forward with allegations of wrongdoing. The campaign against the Chamber was launched in response to the group's opposition to climate change legislation and health care reform, and its plan to spend $100 million lobbying against these and other initiatives.

Um, does anybody else remember this? (Link goes to the lefty site "Common Dreams.")

"A chill wind is blowing in this nation. A message is being sent through the White House and its allies in talk radio and Clear Channel and Cooperstown. 'If you oppose this Administration there can and will be ramifications.' Every day the airwaves are filled with warnings, veiled and unveiled threats, spewed invective and hatred directed at any voice of dissent. And the public ... sit in mute opposition and in fear."

Yeah, it sure was awful when the Baseball Hall of Fame put out a bounty on rescinded an invitation to Tim Robbins. And when the Bu$hitler White House declared war against various media outlets, using various degrees of, um, veildness.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Sure is cold out there.
